Fawn | Hiding in Plain Sight

I stepped out the front door to see if anything was going on in the cul-de-sac. A slight motion caught my eye in front of the house across the way. I watched for a few moments. It was there in the bushes and plantings.

I went back into the house for my camera with a long zoom lens. The fawn rested quietly in the shade. The doe was nowhere to be seen. It remained there several hours. During the first 4 weeks, a fawn is commonly left in grassy protected areas while the doe forages.

The people who live there came home, opened the garage door, drove the car inside, and closed the door. The fawn didn’t budge. It was gone the next morning.

    I’ve read several accounts of fawns being plunked here and there by their mothers this spring, and I think it’s one of the most remarkable things ever. How lucky you were to find this one right on your doorstep — almost literally.

      Two or three weeks ago we saw the doe lead it by the back of our house. It was frisky and clumsy. This time I was very lucky to have seen it before it went down.
